A very good show.
Tresix, I hope you are reading this because I agree with all of your points you have posted. I would like to add one myself. I love all of the episodes except one. That was the two-parter where JJ was shot. What happened was that there was this gang leader named Maddog (his real name was Cleon) who wanted JJ to join their gang. JJ of course did not want to so they barged in to the Evans's home and took him out. While on the way to the rumble, they met JJ's parents and while James tried to get JJ away from them, Maddog took out his gun to try to shoot James but JJ stood in the path of the bullet.

My problem with the story was in part 2 when Maddog and his mother were out side of the courthouse and discussing his father's running out on them years ago. After the mother left, James was infront of the punk who shot his son and instead of beating him to a pulp let him go and was actually sympathetic of him.

I know that the purpose was to make James a better man but the fact that this young man's father deserted him, his mother, and his siblings does not excuse his being a gang member, barging into someones home, or shooting someone.

Other that that, I loved every episode of the series.
